a concrete wall between him and his family. >> hi son wants to be here. it was one or the other. my son's coming out instead. >> reporter: workers from whoild protective services visited the home in december. the agency will not say why. they won't explain why they banned the father from seeing his kids. >> it's tough. we're already under a lot of stress because we don't have isabel here. to have more thrown on us. we're strong. we'll be okay. >> reporter: police say they have no suspects. isabel's father says he discovered her bedroom empty on the morning of april 21st. her window screen tossed aside. >> i need to report a missing child. i believe she was abducted from my house. >> reporter: his steely calm call to 911, complete with the now knower to use chuckle. >> is mom there also? >> i just called her work to tell her to get mher butt home.

this morning, that i ever had a single mother that could come to terms with the fact that her live-in, her boyfriend, her husband, her ex-husband had somehow hurt the child. they don't believe it. i don't understand that. >> the fact that child protective services is stepping in here means there's something they found that suggests he's not a good father. what that is, we don't know. is it connected to the case? we don't know. it's a big deal for them to step in and say, you literally cannot be anywhere near your children. so, for whatever reason, the mother, the wife is saying this, we don't know. but we do know the fact that child protective services issued an opinion about his ainbility be a father. >> the police are not pointing fingers, not naming him a suspect. you bring up a good point. nancy, you're right.
i'm hard-pressed to remember a time, too, when the wife, mother, did not support the live-in or boyfriend. this is not routine for the father to be told not to have any contact with the other children. >> absolutely not. because, think about it. he cannot have any contact at all, robin. that means phone calls, supervise visits, with a relative, sitting there with him and the boys. and the boys are not toddlers. they're, i believe, 10 and 14 years old. child protective services were in the home in december. now, we see it -- the home. it's not relatives or neighbor there's a tpo against. it's the father. at the individualle lavigil las father was standing off. i have analyzed over and over with experts the voice in the
911 call and other times he's spoken, there's an umbrella of suspicion over him today, whether anybody wants to believe it or not, it's there. >> i don't buy you analyze the voice and determine guilt based on that. we have seen people like susan smith and scott petersen -- people like them have gone on television publicly and cried and been so upset and so angry and reacted exactly the way we would expect and we find out later they were guilty. to suggest because someone calls 911 in way most of us wouldn't, to talk about experts and voice experts, it just doesn't mean anything to me. >> i have heard that for so long from defense. attorneys, robin. the reality is, i don't know a single parent that when they're child goes missing, laughs on the 911 call. dan, when you have a child,
maybe you'll understand. i lost john david for about 45 seconds in toys "r" us, and i panicked. >> that's not the way the law works. that t law doesn't work on knowing what you know. >> oh, like you tried so many murder cases? i can tell you right now, a 911 call will come into evidence, dan. >> i'm sure it will. but that doesn't change the reality as to what we know and don't know today. i'll bet you, robin, that the authorities know more than they're telling us about the investigation. >> let's hope so. >> oh, wow, that's smart. of course they know more. they tell us every day they're not giving evidence out. they know enough. they want the father banned from the home. that's what they know, dan. >> the good news is we don't arrest people based on the tone of their voices on 911 calls. >> we have to leave it there.
